Built-in Red Oak Entertainment Center and Bookshelf Cabinet

This is a recent entertainment center in a newer Florida home that is designed to fill in a recessed space in the existing wall. This utilizes an open shelf design without doors and looks really nice.

This is red oak with red oak plywood as a structure to the build. The facing is solid red oak, baseboard, and bed molding trim at top. The baseboard is slightly higher than the existing colonial baseboard trim that is painted white. The stain color is called Golden Oak by Minwax.

Here is the same center from a different angle.

The center section is 44 inches wide, a bit wider than the TV to allow some upsizing later as TV's don't last forever. The shelf just above along with all the shelves are adjustable.

We also built a bookshelf in an additional office room of the same material and design.

This is also set up for a TV in the center section which is 36 inches wide.
